What type of animal is the Pika?



  1. 0 Votes

    The pika is a relative of the hare and rabbit that lives in rocky alpine areas of the United States and Canada. Pikas are foragers and careful food preparers, cutting vegetation and laying it out in the sun to dry before storing it for the winter. They mostly eat grasses and herbs that grow low to the ground, and sometimes even eat wildflowers. Pikas are small, round animals with gray-brown fur and rounded ears. They have an extremely loud call, sounding like a repetition of squeaks. They live in colonies together and are active in the daytime, using sunlight hours to dry the food that they gather for winter.
